Thumbs up New Age Impreza - Please VOTE!

We've put the latest pictures of the new Impreza from the Subaru of Japan's test page. Please take the time to feel out the quick survey on our web site. I can't say who exactly, but some people were watching the last survey we did and this might be an opportunity to let us voice our opinion have possibly have it be heard.

You can find it at: http://www.cobbtuning.com/my02-impreza.html

Thanks for your time,
Trey

P.S. Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out the last survey. We had nearly 600 votes!

I voted but I still think that all those new pictures are still fake. Look at the clariy and such... it's just too sharp to NOT be a computer-generated image.

I voted undecided. I most be getting soft. I'm starting to get use to the new look, especially in silver. And I'm not a big fan of silver.

It may have some potential. Time to start playing in photoshop. Trey maybe you should have a contest to see who can do the best job fixing the MY02's looks.

How on earth can you vote on a car that you have never seen and not driven?
Can we vote that we like or dislike the angle of the photos???

I've never seen a Porsche 959 in person. I love it. The point is, I don't have to see it in person to like it or not.

I'll wait for the make over in MY'03.

If we vote can we get a discount on parts Trey???



I like the new design...gotta accept the fact that times change IMHO. Everybody has been too busy bashing the car to actually look at the internals of it....I would buy it except for I just bought MY00 about 3 months ago.

Trey awesome web site!!! I hope to be ordering parts from you soon!

My friend down there Bill (MY99 White) Says you know your stuff as well as everyone else on this board too!!

I really think that the big hang up with quite a few people mainly has to do with the "neon" style lights. But looking closer at the WRX NB sedan you can really notice that there is a dual lamp setup with a "neon" style cover. I think that there is a great possibility that someone or some company will develop a headlight conversion that will ditch the "neon" look and adopt a much more aggressive look. Just look at what how much more aggressive the Focus looks with a dual lamp headlight conversion or the Impreza with a Morette conversion. At first I didn't care for the new Impreza, but I didn't like the S2000 either until I saw one in the flesh. I'm starting to think that my mind will really change when I get to see the real car and not just pics.

trey,
in the paragraphs you said that you have sampled 600 votes and 77% = dislike. when i was there a coupla hours ago, the poll graphs was showing 56% dislike and 12% undecided.... there's something wrong with your comment. Please change. hehehe.... I'm a statistician so i must check for 95% CI too but I'll let you off on this one.
And what's with 600 votes? the graph showec only 16 and also since you just posted this there can't be 600 voters already?!

I'm pulling a Shiv.

Thanks for everyone who's voting!

Yes, the old poll had approx. 600 Votes w/ 77% dislikes. We restarted the votes to see what the difference in opinion with be with better quality shots as well as the fact that the initial shock has subsided slightly.

I like the idea of having a contest for the best "modified" MY02 car. If any of you are interested, let me know and we'll set up some contest rules, dates, prizes, etc. Could be alot of fun actually...plus maybe inspiration for the next WRX body kit!

Regards,
Trey

I like the wagon the best, the sedan looks like a Legacy GT, not that there is anything wrong the Legacy, but it lost the look that that made the RS or Turbo unique. Where is a picture of the new Integra, just for comparison, of course.

The old or should I say current model that we all love has a sort of angry or pissed off look to it. The new age Impreza has that Hi I'm the happy new Impreza,but I have a turbo so you want to like me look to it.

I have to admit (keep in mind, this is based ONLY on the pictures) that at first I didn't like the look of the car at first, but the design is growing on me. It will probably look bada$$ in the actual metal (just and opinion).
